something else some other part of it and realized everything you thought you knew. i'm trying hard to believe. opposition fury smolders an egypt where the controversial draft constitution is said to have been voted through despite claims it's against the revolution and let's minorities down. you came out stripped of his citizenship refusing to become an informant and reported missing by his family months ago expectedly appears and the u.s. court charged with terrorism. and f.b.i. documents reveal the occupy wall street movement was branded a potential criminal and terrorist threat by the organization.
you saw russia and around the world thanks for joining more protests are expected in egypt as the country awaits results of a referendum on a new constitution they are now gee later on choose day officials have been checking allegations of vote rigging brought forward by the opposition there is going to draft a charter is said to haue won the support of more than sixty percent of voters but turnout was low estimated at less than a third of the electorate the opposition says the document does not represent all objections and has evolved to keep trying to bring down the constitution peacefully and democratically some experts say the draft ignores the rights of minorities. i think that the opposition barring democracy. and the law. if you look at them are proceeding in the way that you can be in the
united. states and you're of. the constitution to be democracy. to be right. on the other hand it's not time to have a kind of party to show he. sort of. unusual or not normal life it's not going to be something that she realizes there is just. so it's the rights of the minority. and they have a right to be worried less christmas bells are ringing out in europe even been melodic chimes come to muffled the boom of austerity cuts have even reached in the sanctum of the conflict the vatican but his aides have held a slightly sponsor an annual mass and st paul's basilica in rome you just trick
budget controls the traditional scene outside the cathedral this year cost a modest twenty two thousand euros some term times less than twenty eleven and as these peace on of the found out all across europe needed a wish and a christmas money worries would dissipate. and since it's a time of goodwill and cheer and giving and for one particularly jolly gent it is busiest time of the year but santa has taken a little bit of time out from clear delivering presents to the boys and girls to join me here in central berlin high something. well if not come on the sled then i say no no it's just a segway it's more comfortable you know keeping within the twenty first century there and you've got some letters from the boys and girls and you're going to share with us something here ok all right now this one has come from a little boy in greece he says exactly what he wants for christmas and for twenty thirteen. dear santa for christmas i would really like
a fiscal policy which would see my country's debt be reduced to one hundred twenty four percent of our annual output on twenty twenty i know that this is a big ask but it will stop the international monetary fund getting that more annoyed with us although we didn't make the whole thirty billion euros worth of savings we promised just recently we did try very hard. dimitri said marise. well who else has been writing to you oh well this one has come from somebody not too far away from where we are right now this is come from a little girl and burn lynne with her christmas wishes for twenty thirty. dear santa thank you for the positive economic growth i asked for last year it has been very helpful this year it would be great if we could have more of the same just is there a way we can give less of our money away to the eurozone countries all the best
angle america p.s. i also want to win the general election next year thank you. of course you get letters from little boys and girls from all over the world these drones just from here in europe produce this from us ones come from from paris from a little boy who says this well all of his famous friends keep running off and leaving him. it would be great if this year a new more of our super rich followed jerrod deputy you and left france we really need their seventy five percent income taxes if we are to stay with the likes of angola and not find ourselves in the same trouble as demetrius thank you francois hollande. oh right well this one comes from a little boy who has been on the naughty list in the past but he insists he's going to be good in the future. i sound here's the thing i want to be prime minister again i know there were some problems last
time however now i'm ready to step back in leave this lead to success quite possibly out of the euro sincerely silvio berlusconi well we'll have to wait to see if their christmas wishes come true but santa did you get my letter yes was i on the nice list you're on minority list. peter all of the. money people in europe are sharing the same christmas wish they see here and then to the blog suffocating austerity drive and later this hour we'll take a closer look at the massive crowd size there have been raging across europe in our special end of year the trap plan. so when the first of season gets out of hand it can only spell trouble for the already overstretched u.k. emergency services that flight.
earlier this year also reported on the case of a british somali man who had his u.k. citizenship revoked while visiting somalia and following bant a man he heard she went missing and as aussies going there to check out reports only to appear months later in a new york courtroom charged with terrorism. bhakti how she stands accused of providing material support to somali militant group al-shabaab how she was stripped of his british citizenship earlier this summer over accusations of his involvement with islamist extremists at the time he and his family tried to contest that decision they claim that m i five. to label him an islamic extremist if he refused to become an informant for british intelligence and spy on the muslim community shortly after his citizenship was revoked he went missing on the outskirts of mogadishu somalia and one of our reporters broke with his parents
several months ago when they had no idea where their son was and they were very worried about him apparently all this time he'd been in u.s. custody also on trial along with the ha she faces similar charges or two of the men swedish national and so all of these men are not u.s. citizens and yet they ended up here this is not the only case in new u.s. courts against alleged terrorists for acts committed overseas in one of the things that many find alarming is how the u.s. finds smuggling foreign nationals in complete secrecy perfectly lawful often keeping the families of those captured in in the dark for months as far as treating foreign nationals suspected of terrorism the u.s. has a set track record hundreds of people have been through the u.s. prison in guantanamo many of them were subject to torture the chief prosecutor at guantanamo and a george w. bush told me most of them were not terrorists and due to the extraordinary rendition program all kinds of people would end up there from different countries
for different reasons stripped of their rights many human rights organizations have been vocal about a lawful practices at guantanamo and yet it's still open by the way despite president obama's pledges to close the prison. and let's go back to our top story some reaction from some of our selway a spokesman for the muslim brotherhood's freedom and justice party will be talking about egypt of course mr assad we welcome to the show so what's your response to critics who say the sharia centric constitution betrays the revolution and sidelines the rights of minorities in egypt. i can't hear the voice can you repeat again the question please of course mr sorry can you hear us now hello can you hear us yes second year of iran taffrail so what's your response to those who say to critics who say the sharia centric
constitution betrays the they were going to your relation to egypt and sidelines the rights of minorities in your country. this is not protocol you can revise the constitution. or. this is not really present and approve of it and the same time the president declared that if the minority or majority needs to commodify he needs in this constitution this can be done through the parliament and through negotiation. turn out for the referendum on the can constitutional is only around thirty percent and are you happy with that figure why didn't more of the electorate come to the polls. no we compare numbers of who want to talk about numbers let us return back to the eighteenth of march nineteenth of march two thousand and eleven eighteen
million. one to defend them and now in two thousand and twelve. we have seventeen million one. so the one million the first is. i suppose this is due to a certain. low our certain. thing that. the government didn't make people from upper egypt for example who are living in cairo to vote in cairo like in the nineteenth of march so we had this deficit of one million people but if we compare the numbers of referendum who won't find any differences. but figures suggest only around hull of all egyptians support the islamists so how do you intend to gain greater backing.
while. again again please all right we have reports and figures in general peter gration of course the figures suggest only around hustle all egyptians in your country support there is limits how do you intend to gain greater backing. we are going to gain. this by by by time you see a lot of people are already entered by what is in the media and our media is against the islamic. parties but by time people would see how we deal with the problems and i think this willing to use our popularity in the coming. in the coming election i see also the muslim brotherhood your party has been known for its anti israel views has that position now changed probably all can
we expect increased tension now between the neighboring countries egypt and israel . we don't we don't have intention to. we don't have intention to increase the tension between us and our neighbors and we declare this since the action of the lower house and the election of a presidential and in the presidential election we don't have the intention to go to war with our neighbors we want peace but we we knew that the fair peace. and as i said to one of the israeli the reporters. before i said to him john kennedy said you can never negotiate with someone who was saying that you are his right is his right and your rights are negotiable this is
not a kind of a negotiation all what we need is a fair negotiation for all parties palestinians egyptians really we need these to be in the in the whole this. all right mr assad a wary very briefly if you can egypt's credit rating has just been slashed by its stance that poisoned a multi-billion dollar i.m.f. loan deal has been put on hold what's to blame for these setbacks and divorce the solution. you see the standard and poor's have the right to lower our. our eleven because of the political instability but i think this is temporary i think within a month the political stability of egypt will innovate our. our standard ordinary. right live from cairo that was somehow a sour way spokesman for the muslim brotherhood freedom and justice party many
speak your language. programs in documentaries in arabic it's all here on our team reporting from the world talks of the ip interview intriguing story to tell you. the arabic to find out more visit our big dog. is good to have you with us recently released f.b.i. documents have revealed that the bureau treated the peaceful occupy movement as a potential criminal and terrorist threat the heavily redacted documents show that the agency was carrying out close surveillance against members of occupy wall street and even mentions an assassination plot against the activists however it's unclear who was behind it the movement began in september twenty seventh in new
york city's financial district with protesters running against corporate greed and economic inequality and independent journalist on that like its miller's says the f.b.i. is making a mistake by siding with big business. they're using a very broad definition of violence to discuss domestic terrorism because obviously an act of terrorism is doing something that is going to kill a lot of people blowing something up something that's far more. terrible and life threatening than just a couple of people assembled in civil protest so i think that they really just ran with the possibility that could get violent and use that to create to manufacture this threat of domestic terrorism because that's really what the f.b.i. has done a lot of these terrorism cases as you saw with muslim and arab communities with the f.b.i. spying on them a lot of it was really. feeding this information to people who were alleged
terrorists but had never done anything and it's that's happening with occupy right now surveillance is happening the whole time meaning that there were informants planted at the occupy camps both in new york and around the country and the f.b.i. the department of homeland security where basically in partnership with corporate america they're actually working with corporations and the stock exchange and the financial sector to protect them so it's pretty obvious who gets protected this society with the christmas holiday season in full swing the festive mood is taking its toll on the british for many who just can't say enough is enough when it comes to drinking it means some tough times for the country's emergency services. went to the northeast of the country to meet some revenue. well it's the season to be merry
but for some of us perhaps a little t. merry but the christmas spirit once again upon us brings awareness campaigns a warning people to be careful about how much they drink over the holiday period now in the last couple of years we've seen the figures increasing so the number of alcohol related injuries and we continue in the u.k. to pay too high a price for alcohol abuse now every year it's costing the n.h.s. and millions of pounds in dealing with the people who are coming three the hospitals and in the build up to christmas it really puts a strain on services such as the police and searches are ambulances now that's a very sobering thought indeed we've come to the north of england to new castle to go out on the town and views of the sensitive nature might want to look away now because we've been joining some people getting into the festive spirit a little earlier this year to find out whether they're going to be drinking responsibly plus a typical night. pretty sorry but it
is actually very yeah and there's a thing with the underage drinking to fill the young people hitting responsibly. you know with that hello no everyone just gets up. over it he thinks. it's a strength. and. a soft drink responsibly yeah. well sometimes i'm not but i. i'm not tonight because of the good night out with a drink response report on order you heard tell me your school where you can also. see apart from these guys you will be a prophet of god who want everyone just to get more responsible over the internet are you more slow food people are over the age of twenty five not really both. of the people that we've been speaking to here tonight have to. so does the weekend
before christmas they have a day nicknamed black eye friday a reference to the number of fights break out here due to excessive drinking this is why the campaign is a calling on the government to really tighten up the policies to make sure that we keep seeing these increases in alcohol abuse in the k. for their part the government this year have really tried to target the sale of cheap alcohol but of course many other problems persist a lot of the young people we were speaking to here tonight saying that they're drinking before they come out since the tyler school preloading where you're getting drunk before you even go out so once again in the build up to christmas we're going to see all right you and stuff we're going to see the police services really overworked having to deal with these problems part of the reason campaign is a really calling on people to be very careful about how much they drink over the festive period surface r.t. . meanwhile as they called us december in decades continues to bite
in russia report on how the nation's coping with the icy embrace on our website. and also online for you the vatican tries to preserve the miracles of rene sounds fine standing by and vacuum cleaner in the sistine chapel those stories and much more for you don't call. twenty two outcomes turned off he takes a look at the bands that have been dominating the headlines for the past twelve months and today we're bringing you the story of the months of protests that have been shaking europe or here from the point of view allowing new teen. it came to the point where if you walked into the studio you knew there was going
to be a story about europe and austerity and protests and riots whether it would be spain or greece or even the u.k. and these were real people in real situations in very scary situations and our correspondents were out there in the midst of it all. so waiting but also i thought still it's over some type of square and i just see the cameraman behind the camera everybody else around me putting just must be a few for moscow going to see your life before you can say anything you get that horrible taste in your mouth and of course it's the tear gas that's become so synonymous with these demonstrations in greece along with the firing of molotov cocktails and clashes with the place the producers like to see their correspondents in the middle of a crowd which is great but then the crowd are shouting correspondents try to speak out everyone's very loud you can't hear anything that makes for good television. it's an incredible event covering it is pretty exciting you've got political
elements you use the elements of the course force you've got the tragic human stories of people who are driven to desperation and pushed onto the streets to protest what they see is their livelihoods just the way over to iraq this most of. the people do think it's about spain's crippling unemployment figures especially amongst the young about the cost of the stakes the study says and then you really get a sense of just how angry at how desperate people. get the full of love that's doing to the country and so yes it's not in the middle of one of these big protest movements when the clashes break out. and coming up after a short break moxon states exposed the dark secrets of the global financial industry stay with us for the kind of report.
